My DIL took me to a couple of our favorite thrift shops yesterday and I found some lace with pink ribbon running through it for only $2.99 - over 4 yards of it! Perfect for certain princess outfits!
I also found a piece of fabric for $1. It looks like men's shirting fabric and I can probably use it to back a quilt. It is bluer than it appears in this picture.
I think the lace will work on the princess skirt.
I also had plenty of fabric to take a couple tucks which can be let out in the future in case the little princesses grow - and still want to wear it.
I like the way the lace makes the skirt fancier. I had planned to take these home with me as I have ooddles of lace there, but now I won't have to.
I'm almost finished with the top and hope to get a picture of the completed outfit being modeled by the sometimes camera shy princess soon.
Now I can get back to my quilting projects.
